DEFINITIONS:
Rank All institutions were ranked on each indicator based on their scores, where the highest rank of 1 corresponds to the highest score out of 100. Volume indicators were not ranked since they have threshold requirements.
Score The score indicates how well a hospital performs on a given indicator, based on its risk adjusted rate where a score of 100 is the highest.
Risk adjusted rate Measures the observed rate adjusted for differences in patients’ age, sex, and the presence of complications.
Observed rate Measures the outcome of interest compared to population at risk.
British Columbia average/total This value is the risk adjusted average (British Columbia average) or total (British Columbia total) of an indicator across all acute care hospitals in British Columbia.
Death in low mortality DRG
Deaths among patients that are considered unlikely to die in the hospital. Lower rates are more desirable.
